Our thanks to all who attended the highly successful ECR Europe conference in Brussels in May.
More than 640 delegates joined us from over 30 countries for an action-packed programme, shared for the first time with our friends at EuroCommerce.
From the surveys carried out during and after the conference, delegates clearly viewed it a big success too. Overall, 62 per cent of respondents said it met their expectations and a further 27 per cent considered it excellent.
The conference content was also rated highly, scoring 8.2 (out of 10) overall compared with 7.7 last year. Eighty-nine per cent said it met or exceeded their expectations.
There was another “first” too of course – the ECR Europe Awards. These were presented at a well-attended evening event and dinner, which was also judged a big success.
The winners of the Best Activation Award, as chosen by the delegates, were the UK team of Coca-Cola and Tesco for their job-swap project. The Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to former Co-chair Luc Vandevelde, and Maggie Chan (Unilever) received the Next Generation Leader Award.
Thanks once again to everyone – delegates, speakers and behind-the-scenes staff – for making it a great conference. The full conference report will be sent to delegates shortly and will also be available to download here.
